Marc Borland Beaver Dam Raceway
Brian Peterson says, "Whenever I win, there's no race recap." Well, true to form, Nick was off, and Brian won the Choice Insurance Legends A-Main. So, here's your story Brian!
The night started out peaceful enough. Nate Chtiko scored his first Legends Heat victory, Jim Bucher backed up his Feature victory from August 16th with a Heat win, and then it all fell apart. Literally. Cody Apfelback destroyed the body of his car, flipping violently down the front stretch. Thankfully, he walked away unassisted. Mike Mueller scored the win, inching his way ever closer to points leader, Joe Bongiorno. Joe holds a 35 point lead over Mike going in to next weeks final points night.
In the Taco Bell Grand Nationals Aaron Streblow got closer to Tommy Moore by winning his heat. Tommy leads Aaron by 22 markers. Nick Schumacher and Scott Hermersmann also won heats. The A-Main went to Kenny Richards, in a torrid chassis battle with Streblow, who finished second.
The NAPA Street Stocks saw Derek Childs, Roger Frank, and Tim Draheim in victory lane for their heats. Mark Baker continued his winning ways, scoring the A-Main trophy. The points are a family affair, with Scott Riedner leading Brandon Riedner by 20.
The battle is close in the Performance Motor Sports Sport Modified points. Jeff Schmuhl leads Jimmy Berkevich by just 1 point, going into the closer next week. Nick Shultz is a more than interested bystander, 24 points back. Heats went to Tim Schmitt, Jimmy, and Feature winner Jeremy Schwoch.
The Weld Modifieds saw a wild night, with a shakeup in the points. Matt Rechek, the points leader, had to run the B. He started 17th in the A, finally cracking the top ten with a 9th. He leads Jeremy Christians by only 11 points, Noah Schepp is 16 back, Andrew Araco down by 17, Dave Schenberger looking in at 26 down, and Brian Crapser still has a chance, 29 points behind. This will be a points battle down to the wire. Dan Roedl won the B-Main. The heats were captured by Jeff Bodendorfer, Dave Schoenberger, and clean sweeper Dustin Smits, who also led wire to wire for the feature event.
Next up, the final points night, where all these battles will be settled. Saturday, September 17th. Gates open at 4:30, racing at 6:30. Still, only $20 a carload.
